About Us

The Portland Urban Adventures team is led by Madi Carlson, Sarah Gilbert and Edwin Skaug. While each of the partners has a different relationship with the city, they all stem from a deep love connected to the collaborative spirit and physical beauty of this place. Sarah, born here, has the longest history; but each has chosen this city as home.

The partners together have been working as bike tour guides for many years and take their role as professional storytellers and interpreters of this place with both seriousness and joy. Each has spent a decade car-free, learning Portland in the most intimate way possible, by bike and foot.
